Folks,

Can someone explain to me why I would want to have the EXIF data transferred to the IPTC caption field when I import my photos?

At the moment I'm in a state of blissful ignorance. As per usual.... :shock:

Scripts can extract the info from the IPTC caption field for use in certain programs, some gallery programs use the caption field to read certain data into there databases.

But its use (for me) is limited, hope that helps.

That's the conclusion I was coming to, but I just wanted to make sure!

Cheers!

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the pointer on this. I had another question lined up (Why doesn't the script just use the standard EXIF data?) but I quick look at the FAQ on Joe's page gave me the answer (you get more data going the IPTC route - like lens info).

Time to download Nikon Transfer..... :wink:

Anyone know if the EXIF data script can be used on Photoshop Elements 2.0? I don't have CS as I mainly use Nikon Capture.

Thanks.

Paul,

Thanks.....I downloaded and the script works fine. The only problem is that I haven't been using Nikon Transfer so some of the data is missing. I'll start using Transfer so I capture all the data.

Thanks again !
